New Atrocities Reported Throughout Darfur
Advertisements [?]
by Robyn Dixon, LA Times

KALMA CAMP, Sudan When the mosque at Yassin village was burned by Arab militias more than a week ago, there was no way to save four frail old men who died in the flames.

A list of 485 dead from the surrounding area, painstakingly collected by local people over two months, burned in the mosque too, village leaders said.

Some survivors of the latest atrocities in the south Darfur region have trickled into the Kalma camp for displaced persons outside Nyala in recent days. Aid officials report that about 1,000 families more than 5,000 people are still making their way to the camp.

The attacks mirror violence by Arab militias throughout the Darfur region, which have caused 1.2 million people to flee their villages since last year. The U.N. has described it as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, estimating that between 30,000 and 50,000 have died.
